13. Just Having Green Juice for Breakfast
If you’re only drinking a small serving of green juice for breakfasting, you’re highly likely to overeat later during the day because you didn’t satiate your appetite in the morning. Even though green juice is a terrific way of consuming all your essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, but if you’re only adding a few veggies to your juice, it is unlikely to provide you the energy and satisfaction required to keep your appetite satiated until lunch.
Without a protein packed breakfast, you’ll end up feeling sluggish and lazy, and you’ll end up picking out unhealthy treats from the wending machine to get rid of the exhaustion. You see, breakfasts that lack protein and fiber, the most essential nutrients needed to keep you energized and satiated, cannot be classified as healthy. If you want to have green juice in the morning, be sure to create a balanced breakfast that also includes fiber and protein.
14. Adding Zero-Calorie Sweeteners
Most people tend to regard these supposedly zero-calorie sweeteners as a safe and healthy option to sweeten their coffees and teas, but the truth is that, they contain nothing but unnatural and synthetic ingredients that tend to exhibit negative impacts on our health. Moreover, they are much sweeter than natural sugar tends to taste, and if you pick out a natural sweetener, like honey, it would taste much less sweeter in comparison. Therefore, it is always a better idea to use real sugar in mindful portions.
15. Placing Unhealthy Food Items in Easily Accessible Locations
On days when we literally have to drag ourselves out of bed and even a hot shower can’t seem to eliminate the grogginess that is making us lazy, a giant loaf of banana bread of last night’s leftover pizza would seem like a convenient and attractive breakfast option. In such situations, one has to apply the remedy of out of sight, out of mind. Naturally, if you don’t have unhealthy food items lying around in the fridge or the pantry, easily viewed and beguiling you to devour them, you won’t eat them.
Instead of stocking up unhealthy and processed treats, place bowls of fruits, nuts, seeds and veggies on the counter so you have a healthy snack to take on the go. It’s always a good idea to pre-cut some veggies and fruits at night, so you can grab them up and dash out of the door in the morning.
